Healthcare

In the field of medical patronage, the Bouygues group provided support to 8 non-profit organisations working for medical research in 2016.
Ela

Association Ela

Founded in 1992 by Guy Alba, Association Européenne contre les Leucodystrophies or "ELA" is a charity in which families organise to fight against rare genetic diseases that destroy the myelin (the "insulation" of nerves) of the central nervous system. Each week in France, three to six children (20 to 40 in Europe) are born with these terrible disorders

Since its creation, ELA has provided support to families totalling €8.5 million, and has also been able to finance 447 scientific programmes for a total amount of €35.4 million.

Bouygues has supported this charity since 2012 via the ‟Mets tes baskets dans l’entreprise″ initiative.

Syndrome Ondine

Association Française du syndrome d’Ondine

The “Ondine” syndrome, called also Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS), is a disorder of the central nervous system where the automatic control of breathing is absent or impaired during sleep.

Children suffering from this syndrome require respiratory assistance while they sleep. The charity aims to forge relationships between parents of children suffering from this syndrome and between the children themselves.

Since 2001, the Group has been donating annually to finance a specific research grant on the Ondine syndrome.

The Foundation for Research into Cerebrovascular accidents

The Foundation for Research into Cerebrovascular accidents (Fondation pour la Recherche sur les AVC), created in 2014 with the support of the Foundation for Medical Research (Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale), is the only foundation in France to finance research programmes solely in this domain. Its aims are to better prevent cerebrovascular accidents by better identifying their causes, to better treat severe accidents by developing new therapeutic methods, to improve neurological recovery after an accident and, finally, to prevent vascular cognitive impairment. Its rationale is to provide the best French research teams with the resources to explore all the avenues that will one day help to eliminate cerebrovascular accidents.
